Trip to Tallaght Library

world serpent book coverLast Wednesday, Ms O Callaghan`s and Mr Maguire`s class went to the County Library to meet the amazing author Alan Early. He wrote the Arthur Quinn trilogy. In his book, a twelve year old boy named Arthur Quinn and his friend Ash find an underground monster called Serpes. The book is based on Viking Legends and is set in Dublin. Alan Early knows a lot about the Vikings and their Gods. He told us he got a lot of information from researching Vikings.
He played a game with us called ‘Who wants to be a Viking God?’ where he asked you questions about Vikings and if you answer the question you get a point. We made our own Viking goddess it was really fun! Then we all settled down and he read us a piece from his second Arthur Quinn book. After that, it was question time and we had some really interesting questions about what it was like to be an author. We also asked him for advice on how to write a scary story. He said the worst thing to do was to finish a story by saying it was all a dream. But then sadly it was time to go.. Alan Early is really and truly a magnificent author. We look forward to reading the whole trilogy!
